So i've opened Origin for the first time since they offered the free game.
Now I don't know which game to choose. Dead Space or Battlefield.. I'll probably play the game once and be done with it anyway.. Decisions, decisions..
And I think I'm already done with SimCity.. I get bored so ****ing fast.
I'd go for Dead Space even though I haven't played it. With BF3, you're way behind in terms of DLC (5 expansion packs, each released at $15 a pop, although you can get the earlier ones for ~10 now), the single player campaign is subpar, and the multiplayer really isn't anything special (although it's certainly a more immersing/semi-realistic game than CoD).
It's sad that we have to do that in order to fully utilize casinos and landmarks. Is AI programming that hard to do in a game like this?
It should not be hard to get them to evenly distribute themselves. It would require a slight return to abstraction in the form of each sim getting a set destination and then traveling to it regardless, but that's actually closer to how the real world works. Everyone has a place they go to work, everyone has a place they go to school, and most people have one or two places they favor when shopping.
It's just really lazy programming on Maxis part, probably due to pressure from EA to get the game out the door.
I learned this the hard way. The entire system in this game is flawed. I wanted my casinos by the waterfront. Complete and utter failure. Even with boats.

Just to let you guys know that I'm not being ignorant by not accepting the invite to HFworld 2 (or whatever it's called). I just can't load the region for some reason. Other than the traffic being very oddly behaved (nobody takes alternate routes, even when they're much wider roads), it is the one problem I've run across.
